"Improving--and preventing the need for--foster care."

Founded in 1966, Casey Family Programs is the nation’s largest operating foundation whose work is focused on safely reducing the need for foster care and building communities of hope for all of America’s children and families. 

Believing that every child deserves a family of their own and a community of hope, Casey works in partnership with child welfare systems, families and communities across the nation to prevent child abuse and neglect and to find safe, permanent and loving families for all children.

For decades, Casey Family Programs has provided high-quality foster care, kinship care and transition services, improving the lives of children and families across the country to ensure that all children can be raised in a safe and permanent family.

Casey also provides strategic consulting services to help public child welfare agencies improve their services, including Indian child welfare agencies; educates state and federal lawmakers on the need for public policy changes that will help child welfare systems provide effective services, and engages in nonpartisan research so that child welfare professionals and lawmakers can make informed decisions based on data and evidence.
